Yuengling Lager Beer Marinade

With some family over for a BBQ this weekend, I wanted to do kebobs for something different and a dish we had not had in awhile! Grandson in-law’s mom also joined us and she is not much of a meat eater so I figured on having plenty of veggies grilled along with the meat. In addition to doing the grilling, I turned the marinade recipe for the meat over to husband as I had enough to do! The end results were pretty funny as everyone loved his concoction except him and he told me to throw away what he wrote down as he would not make it again! Of course, the peppers and onions I marinated in Italian dressing and basted the squash and tomatoes as they were cooking on the grill.

What will you have? Chicken - Pork or Sausage?

I got my Comet rice cooker out to make the rice and I asked everyone if they knew what it was and Jan (Andy’s mom) had no clue nor did anyone else for that matter!  After tasting and seeing how the rice turned out, my granddaughter said she had to have one of those gadgets. I told her good luck as she would have to find one on-line as they haven’t been made in many moons! They were also surprised at how we fix the kebobs as I always skewer the meats separately from the veggies as they all take different times to cook and if there is anything I abhor is when my veggies are burnt to a crisp! Well apparently everyone liked the manner in which they were cooked because there was not a piece left when everyone left the table except a few measly pieces of pork, and I thought I had made more than enough, there I go thinking again!

Yuengling Lager Beer Marinade
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup Yuengling beer (after husband's post on his potatoes, I'm sure you know where the rest of the bottle went!!!)
  • 1 tbls Worcestershire sauce (or as Kenny had written down, Worcestire, it's that spelling like you say it thing he has!)
  • ¼ tbls Seminole Swamp seasoning (he uses this stuff in everything including his omelets!)
  • ½ tbls garlic powder
  • 1 teas lemon juice
  • 1 teas parsley flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Cut meat into desired size cubes and marinate for a minimum of five hours or over night, we used chicken breasts and boneless center cut pork chops.
  2. Skewer chicken and pork separately and grill meat until done over medium coals.
  3. We did not marinade the kielbasa, just the pork and chicken.

 

And then we topped it off with a homemade Key Lime Pie…………enjoy!

Memorial Day Feast

What a week and what a BBQ we had! Wanted to get this in yesterday however, with a very bad storm yesterday afternoon that produced hail and a long power outage, I got delayed.
It was so nice having the kids down from Indiana and their son on leave from the Air Force base, and then granddaughter and her family to join in the festivities! The house is now back to quiet and I have not had to cook any food as we had a ton left overs.

Always been one to way over cook as I never want anyone to go home hungry, a lesson drilled in my head ever since I can remember. Of course, if all my buddies out there in cyber-world had shown up at Regina’s Kitchen like they said, I wouldn’t have had so much food left, where were you guys anyhow?  Kenny was glad when I told him that the chicken was finally used up but we are still munching on potato salad, corn and corn bread. All of the dishes I prepared, were old, tried and true recipes that I have been making with one exception, my granddaughter’s B’day cake.

She did get all the candles blown out..

I had found a recipe for a watermelon looking cake and thought I would try a little different approach to making it. I made a regular white cake from Swan’s cake flour, dyed half the batter red for the inside of the melon and left the other part white for the rind. To the red batter, I added some raisins to make the seeds and with some not to fond of raisins, I didn’t put enough in to make it realistic looking. I used tin foil to separate the rind from the center and when I pulled out the foil, the batter kinda blended in together in places causing it not to be perfect in any way. Then I made a simple cream cheese icing, dyed it green for the rind and slapped it together, and I mean slapped it as it wasn’t the prettiest cake I ever made, just too much going on in the kitchen. When she saw the cake, she asked me what it was and I told her it was a surprise for when she cut it open! It was one of those cakes that tasted much better than it looked, trust me!

Went great with homemade ice cream!

The rest of our cookout included:
Deviled eggs, glazed chicken, BBQ ribs with a dry rub, cole slaw, fresh corn on the grill, potato salad, country corn bread, Kenny’s baked beans with cane syrup, Kielbasa sausage, and of course the cake with homemade ice cream! I think I covered it all……….

Kenny of course, covered cooking on the grill although, I did cook the meat off somewhat in the oven as the temps that day were extremely HOT outside hovering over 90 degrees and I figured that would at least cut down on the time on the grill! The girls and I handled what was left to do in the kitchen and then it was a race to the buffet to eat. Kenny said it seemed funny that it takes so long to prepare and then maybe a half an hour to eat. I’ve been trying to tell him that for years of cooking by myself………….the cooking and cleanup is always the worst!
But all in all, everyone enjoyed the hard work put into the meal and that’s all that counts! Hope you all had as great of a holiday as we did and maybe now we can get back to normal, well at least until the Fourth of July!

P.S. Anyone want a kitten as mama cat finally brought her litter out of the woods for us to see, they’re awfully cute but Kenny said we have more cats than we need…..yada, yada, yada!
